The magic of disney

‘All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.’ Walt Disney

Seems like a simple enough saying but in reality the road to fulfilling our dreams is paved with adversity. Those obstacles do come in many forms and shapes and the challenge is to keep your eye on the prize.

My challenge as a mother is to teach my daughters the importance of setting goals and being prepared for setbacks. Being a princess is a lot more complex than living in a castle.

After watching the Disney on ice show and following the various challenges of the princesses my only criticism is that all of their ambitions seemed to involve being rescued by a man. I’m no feminist but the idea that a man will be the answer to all your problems is a step too far. I have a prince of my own and we’ve had to evolve together to achieve our dreams.

The future is bright for all who work towards their dreams no matter how impossible it seems to those looking in on your adventure.
